To be a Learning Organization or not to be?
As was mentioned before in my privious blog, my PMA topic is "How to transform your company to a learning organization...?". There is a question HOW, but for me, it is more reasonable to ask WHY? Do modern companies actually need this transformation?
I am not sure. What is the learning organization without Deming's System of Profound Knowlege? It is just the bag fulled with labels and brands, which doen't garantee the quality. It might be more apropriate to follow Deming's SPK as it automatically brings company to the deep understanding of learning's importance. Take our CBE learning environment, for example! - to learn smth we "play" all the time and while our playing we gain new knowlege. So why than companies want to study HOW TO LEARN, instad of study HOW TO CONTINIUOUS IMPROVE their business? While being searching for the answer they will realize that they ARE arcualy learning.
Other words, may be instad of PLANNING how to LEARN, it is better START to learn? I am not against planning but sometimes people spend too much time on developing the process rather than on taking actions.
